Bookings are strongly recommended. Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Coxs River, a place his family has ridden since the 1820s. All that changed nearly 20 years ago when the river was declared a wilderness area, the business closed and Luke's father died. After a long history of difficult relations between the National Parks and the Carlons, National Parks Ranger Chris Banffy has a problem he thinks Luke might be able to solve. A wiley mob of brumbies inhabit the Burragorang Valley, a water catchment area sealed off for over 50 years. Classed as feral pests, Chris needs to remove the horses from Sydney's water supply without any of the outcry that has marred some previous control operations using shooters in helicopters. The only access to the trap-yards is either by helicopter or horseback. If Luke takes the job, he will have to find the horses, get them in the trap, and he'll have to break them in enough to lead them a bone crunching 5 km up to another set of yards with truck access.

Blue Is The Warmest Colour (R18+)
Acclaimed French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche's latest, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year's Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d'Or. Adèle is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Emma is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche's movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation that pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation. It is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life. Watch the trailer here

Director: Hayao Miyazaki.
All Is Lost (M)
Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner's intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
